Holiday ONLINE Chess Camp
December 28-30, 2020 / Open to all up to 1800 USCF
10:00 AM-2:00 PM (Monday-Wednesday on Zoom)
How ONLINE Camp Works: Students still get blocks of lessons at set times with different instructors covering a wide range of subjects and suitable for their groups. Students can raise their hands and ask questions and they can also save all the information on their desktops or cloud. They can also leave and join back when needed and participate in discussions.
This camp will implement the same structure as our wildly successful Western Alliance Camp held in June. While the structure of the camp will stay the same, the instructors and subject matter will vary to provide greater learning diversity for our campers. Each day will consist of two lessons covering different subjects and game analysis, along with fun activities and a tournament. The tournament portion will have a different time control each day to make it even more fun and exciting.
Groups: We will aim for 4 groups as usual: No age restriction.
Group 1: Beginner (WILDCATS) (Approx 100-500 USCF) Those who know moves but not much more.
Group 2: Intermediate (COYOTES) (Approx 500-900 USCF). More advanced and experienced.
Group 3: Advanced Intermediate (HAWKS) (Approx 900-1200 USCF). Tournament players.
Group 4: Special (BEARS). (Approx 1200-1800 USCF). Very strong and highly motivated.
Schedule: 4 days: July 20-23 (Monday-Thursday).

Instructors: Professional Instructors and Tournament players. We will pick the final Instructor group closer to the camp and that way we can incorporate special guest speakers too.
Payments: Price will also mirror the other camp and be set at only $200 per student with discounts for additional family members. Payments will be mostly done via online platforms of Zelle and Venmo (both are our preferred methods) but Paypal and likely Events4chess.com (or a Credit card) as well as a personal check will be acceptable too.
